Hereford River Carnival is an event organised by the people of Hereford for the people of Hereford.

Since it was successfully revived in 2014, the number of groups, organisations and local businesses who take part continues to grow and grow.

Around 15,000 people attended the 2017 event which focuses on the River Wye, reconnecting the city and community with its stunning river and taking in Castle Green, High Town, Bishop’s Meadow, King George V Playing Fields and Left Bank.

Next year the event is on Saturday 5th May with the second part of our performance that brings the Mappa Mundi to life onto the streets of Hereford on Friday 4th May.

An event for everyone bringing 15,000 into Hereford

The event is all about the people and families of Hereford. It combines music, dance, crafts, sport, great food and messing about on the Wye to create an event like no other in the Hereford calendar.

Schools, community groups, clubs and societies all get involved along with the people of Hereford and growing numbers of visitors to our historic city.

We need your help to make it happen

Hereford River Carnival is a charity (part of the Plynlimon Trustrun entirely by volunteers and although we actively and successfully seek funding from groups like Children in Need, the Arts Council and Heritage Lottery Fund and get local support from groups like the City Council, we need funds to make the Carnival happen.

Particularly we need funds to fulfil one of our main aims and ensure that the Carnival is open to everyone.

This is where you come in. We realise that some smaller businesses would like to make a contribution to make the River Carnival happen but cannot afford large sponsorship packages. That’s why we’ve created the Hereford River Carnival Business 100 Club for those businesses that want to support us in some way.

What’s in it for you?

  • Your business and brand promoted through our website, social media and to 15,000+ visitors
  • Giving vital charitable support for one of Hereford’s brightest, best-loved, award-winning events that’s open to everyone
  • The chance to hear about news and events before anyone else via our online newsletter
  • Reduced priced tickets for other Carnival events
  • Your logo on the Carnival website and a link to your own website
  • Two tickets to the champagne reception on the morning of the Carnival
  • The chance to support something fantastic in your community

Put simply, if 100 Herefordshire businesses give us £100 that would go a huge way to ensuring the Carnival goes ahead and will enable us to do more work in schools and to stage more community making and music workshops which take place all over Hereford and are open to all. They give everyone regardless of their background the chance to get involved in the build up to Carnival as well as on the day.

Profile on social media and via our website

Of course, you can give us more if you are able to and all contributions will be acknowledged on our website with a link back through to your site. We’ll also publicise your support through social media and be happy to work with you on promoting your business to our followers and friends.

Be a part of something brilliant.
